Helping Hands: Do you wish the leaves would rake themselves up? Are you dreading how deep the leaves in your gutter are? Do you feel anxious about climbing the ladder to hang up Christmas decorations? We have great news for you! The youth of Good Shepherd are offering their hands and feet to perform fall/winter cleanup activities for members of the congregation for free will offerings to help cover some of the costs of attending the Gathering next July. Cleanup activities include things such as raking leaves, cleaning gutters, pruning perennials, putting away patio furniture, hanging up Christmas lights, etc. If you have an activity that you would like assistance with, please reach out to Julie Toll at 262-490-8447 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Reason For God: Join us Sunday mornings in between services for the next few weeks as we study "The Reason For God" using RightNow Media. This study will help us dig deeper into the objections of the Christian faith and to learn about both sides of the issues. Sessions include: 1. Isn’t the Bible a Myth? 2. How Can You Say There Is Only One Way to God? 3. What Gives You the Right to Tell Me How to Live My Life? 4. Why Does God Allow Suffering? 5. Why Is the Church Responsible for So Much Injustice? 6. How Can God Be Full of Love and Wrath at the Same Time? If you missed last weeks’ episode or want to preview this Bible Study, please go to RightNow Media and watch away!
Thank You: Thank you, glorious people of the Good Shepherd for the wonderful cards and gifts you blessed our family with for pastor appreciation. We are filled with appreciation for you! - Pastor Koepsell and family.
Prayer Partners: Thank you to the members that have offered to become a Confirmation Student Prayer Partner. A letter with your Prayer Partner’s name and other information was sent out on Monday, Oct 11th. If you have not received it, please let me know so I can get you a copy of it. There is a box in the church office for you to put your notes in. Thank you for taking part in this amazing program.
Saturday Morning Craft Group: Grab your travel mug full of coffee, craft supplies and join us each Saturday morning from 9-noon as we craft together to help make items to sell at the annual Good Shepherd Craft & Bake Sale.
Coffee Hour: For the next few Sundays, Thrivent is sponsoring our coffee hour. All free willing offerings will go towards supporting our new Family Ministry Books. If you haven’t already, look at the great family resources above the quiet bags. We encourage you to take advantage of this new ministry by checking out a book or family devotion.
Childcare Needed: Do you love children or maybe you are a high schooler looking for some service hours? The church is looking for someone to watch the two youngest Charles Family boys on Wednesdays from 5-6:15 pm when there is Confirmation Class. Jennifer has graciously volunteered to teach the 7th grade Confirmation Class but is looking for someone willing to play with her youngest boys in the nursey at church while she teaches. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact the church office.
